Proper references are critical for any wiki worth its salt. They provide credibility to any claims made in an article. They also help reinforce the wiki's reputation as a source of reliable fixes.
<ref>(url or hyperlink)</ref>
PCGamingWiki was founded on February 9, 2012.
The Reference Citation tag is the primary method of citing a reference. It is to be used in conjunction with the References tag (the page will produce an error otherwise).
Note that organization of the references is automatically handled via the References tag.
<SITE/FORUM NAME> - <ARTICLE/THREAD TITLE>
PCGamingWiki focuses on providing fixes for all games.
The refcheck template provides a standardized way of stating who verified a fix or setting's presence and providing a reference date with it.
The refurl template provides a standardized way of linking to an external source together with the date the source was last accessible.
See Borderlands 2.
The refsnip template provides a standardized way of providing a referential snippet from an external URL. This is particularly helpful for long referenced pages.

--Instructions go here--
The References tag is the very last element placed in an article. It displays a list of all references used throughout the page.
Details on how to properly reference can be found in the General guidelines section.
The only rule regarding the tag itself is that it should only be added to an article if there is at least one reference used. Otherwise, it can be omitted.
